Barker Pass to Tahoe City: (update 5/13/13) The trail from Tahoe City south to Ward Creek Blvd is mostly clear of snow. Page Meadows has a significant amount of standing water in it. No reports to date regarding Ward Creek Blvd. to Barker Pass.
Brockway to Mt. Rose: (update 5/13/13) Trail is mostly clear up to Martis peak rd. except for 2 small patches of snow at 2.3 miles and 6-7 small patches starting at mile 3.2. No specific information to date from Martis Peak to Relay Peak but based on other trail condition reports there is probably a significant amount of snow still on the trail in this section.
Tahoe Meadows to Spooner: (update 5/13/13) Trail is clear of snow from Spooner Summit trail head north to about 5 miles then there are 2 snow fields. The first one is not advisable for horses due to side slope. Hikers can continue by traversing over them. At the 4 mile mark, and at the junction with the North Canyon side trail to North Canyon Campground there is plenty of snow. For Flume Trail conditions click here.
Spooner to Kingsbury North: (update 5/13/13) From the Spooner Summit trailhead the trail is clear for three miles towards Kingsbury North. Large amounts of snow exist on the trail after the first three miles and continue all the way to 'the bench' (approximately 5.5 miles from trailhead). The patches are walkable but in several sections hikers sank down into the snow to the knee. Some drifts have up to 5 feet of snow which have made the trail very hard to follow and trail users should be prepared to navigate through snow or follow previous tracks. After 'the bench', there are still some patches of snow on the trail.
Kingsbury North to Kingsbury South: (update 4/22/13) Trail on the north side of Hwy 207/Kingsbury Grade is relatively clear of snow. Large, deep drifts of snow exist on the trail headed south towards the Kingbury South Trailhead.
Kingsbury South to Big Meadow: (update 5/12/13)- Trail still covered with significant patches of snow especially around the Armstrong Pass/Freel Peak junction.
Echo Lakes to Barker Pass: TRTA has not received any current updates.
